God’s Mission and the Local Church

AQF: 6/7/8 hybrid

SEMESTER 2 2021
Wednesday Daytime Unit

EM060-612/712/812

Our God is a God of mission. The gospel is for people of every nation, tribe and tongue, in Australia and to the ends of the earth. We all affirm it but how should it impact our lives and our churches here? Should we just focus on our own neighbourhood and let others work out the rest? What does it look like to faithfully serve God’s global mission at home? What is our role locally and further afield?

In this unit we'll together gain the understanding, perspectives, and skills required to help local churches become more aligned with God’s missional purposes. We'll engage with God’s word, with what God is doing in the world and with the changing demographic realities of Australia and the globe. We'll see the important role a church can play in raising up and sending out cross-cultural workers and in partnering with what God is doing across the street and across the oceans.
